After a lot of work. I searched a lot of articles on the internet to find out what I needed. It was very difficult to find materials. When I actually started the installation, it took me a long time because I had never built anything like this before. Then the transport. To take this huge machine into the House of the People. I got in a meeting with the assembled Chambers. They all thought it was the new voting server system, as it said in the papers. Until the first button was pressed. A lot of noise. And nothing was left within a kilometer radius.

Real Fiction is a collective project started in 2013 by Florin Piersic Jr. The concept of Real Fiction continued to exist as a Facebook group, after a volume of stories was published at Humanitas Publishing House. (In September 2022, the group has 9,250 members.) The authors write ultra-short stories, with the texts limited to 500 characters (in Romanian, so the length of the English translation might be a little different) - a flash-fiction exercise on a topic that changes almost daily. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
